3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: IU is large so it has undoubtable had its fair share of crimes and scandals. However, it can be safe to walk at night as long as another person is present. In general I believe students look out for each other

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had my fair share of great and not so great professors. It's really hit or miss, I always check rate my professor before I enroll in a course. Your professor can really make or break your class experience.

Campus Housing: I live in Briscoe so I have a really skewed view of student housing on campus. They don't call it hotel Briscoe for no reason!

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Being a member of Greek life at IU I would say it has it's ups and downs, and is definitely not for everyone. However, it is a great community in which you have the ability to make amazing friends and future connections. The philanthropies on this campus are largely due to Greek Life, and I believe without Greek Life the philanthropic aspects of IU would greatly suffer.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: IU has great school spirit no one ever feels left out at an event.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far at Indiana University I have had a breadth of experiences, and made connections with many interesting people. However, some of the Gen Ed classes are ridiculous, especially for the media school, and are really unnecessary. I have had my share of great professors and just down right awful professors, but I think that is to be expected at any large university. Scheduling classes is impossible, if you are in Kelley forget graduating in 4 years. Classes fill and "Hutton Honors classes" take up spots that could go to other students. As for some positives about IU, the school spirit is amazing, and on game days everyone comes together as a community and is proud to be a Hoosier.

Health & Safety: While campus seems relatively safe I am a cautious person who has lived near a big city. From the time that I got here I have made sure to not walk alone at night. There is safety in numbers.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I just finished my first semester at IU. I have had different experiences with professors. My sociology professor was a TA and I loved him. He was great at communicating with his students. However, I found that my math professor was not good at communicating with his students. The math help center was not fantastic. I had to pay for a private tutor.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think that a degree from IU will be valuable. However, as I just finished my first semester I really do not know the answer to this question.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in McNutt. It is a huge dorm with tons of students. It is pretty old and is in need of some repairs. My friends live in Briscoe, which I find to be fantastic.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: This month I rushed the sororities. It was a very difficult process because so many of the students choose to rush and only about half would be accepted. I was thrilled and consider myself to be so lucky to have been chosen by a sorority. I am currently a pledge and I think it's one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to me.

Athletics: IU has a great basketball team. Their football team just had one of their best seasons and things seem to be on the upswing for them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being a Hoosier and everything that IU has to offer. My only problem/concern is that it is expensive to attend as an out of state student. I realize that the cost for an out of state student to attend IU will not go down. I am hoping that I can complete my undergraduate studies at IU, as if I had to do it all over again I would choose the same path that I am taking now.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is generally a safe place, but it definitely could use extra measures to make campus more secure.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Definitely so many options for different, fun classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Alumni are always willing to give a helping hand to a fellow Hoosier.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is the fastest way to meet friends in college. Apply for any of the LLC's that interest you because they all are fantastic and you can meet people who are interested in the same things as you.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you want the classic Greek life experience, IU is the place. About 40,000 students attend this school so getting into a house is difficult.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: If you come to IU, you will definitely see the Hoosier spirit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is definitely a lot to do at IU and so many people you can possibly meet. With that being said, there is so much competition to join certain activities.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. When I do not feel safe I just go to a more populated area or call the free iu transportation if I feel unsafe

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Other than a few bad professors, it's been overall rather well

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are lots of career fairs, but they are all at the same time and can be inconvenient

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I got lucky in my room that I got when I lived on campus. It was extremely close to my classes, but it did not have air conditioning

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Lately the Greek system has gotten a bad reputation for every thing that has happened and I was never part of it nor do I want to be

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
